Has anyone here heard of a Alexander Customized Hats?

From the one hat of theirs I saw, it looks a lot like a Dobbs. I
don't know the age of it, but I was just curious. I know there
is a store in NC. of the same name, buy do they make there own
hats there? and are they any good?

Thanks folks for any info!

Earlier Ownership was G.W. Alexander but acquired by Stetson. I believe that slogan was during the Stetson period.

That's the one. Thanks for the info guys!
That logo is the one inside the hat.

Bought out by The Stetson company, eh?

I will upload the picture of the lining here in
just a bit.

EDIT: Ok here is the hat logo on the lining and sweatband:

Does anyone own a Alexander hat here? and how do you like it?

Very nice hats, thanks for posting them. So how do they compare with other hat companies? Are they on-par with hat companies like Lee or Knox? Did they come in both Wool and Fur Felt?

I did end up purchasing one of them from an eBay auction, and I'll post it when it arrives on my doorstep.

Open Road style Coronet. Would not have know it was Alexander made. But Robert's example above shows they are. Nice heather look to the felt. 3 cord ribbon.

Nice!
Got a Blue Coronet Homburg last week sold by Lellewer's Chicago Hat Store Chain--still can't find the camera. It hasn't come out of one of the dogs so I may yet find it[huh]

Reminds me of the Groucho Marx joke, something along the lines of: "Outside of a dog, nothing beats a good book. Inside the dog, it's too dark to read."

Beautiful hat, there, Buler!

Age of a company does not necessarily translate into a hats age. The general construction of the hat is what usually tells a general time range of the manufacture date

Another decent company long gone since the early 1960's. Occasionaly you will find one on Ebay. They were in Reading PA.
